A story of tenacity and courage to make a heartbreakingly difficult decision.
For the third time, Lonnie Dupre, polar explorer and a dear friend has attempted to reach Denali summit during the month of January.
Having reached the last camp (17,200ft) before summit (20,320ft), Lonnie was faced with a life or death decision. Having spent two sleepless nights at high camp and having developed pulmonary edema in his lungs, there was only one sound choice to be made.
Lonnie spent 24 days on Denali.
